Ultram

Do  ER doctors not realize the danger of Ultram.  We took my bro to hospital with seizures 5 in a 2 week period.  We told him he had to be honest so he could get help.  He told the doc he was addicted to pills.  
The doc asked what kind so he told him Ultram.  He laughed and so drug induced by ultram,  good one buddy.
We were flabbergasted and are checking into getting some help.
Any info would be appreciated.  He takes 15 - 20 at a time easy.
Thanks  Rosie44k

Sorry to hear about this - the seizures are definitely from the Ultram.  The maximum daily dose isnt supposed to exceed 400mg (they are usually 50mg each) and seizures are a known problem with overuse of the drug.  To many physicians think it is a safer alternative to narcotics but it isnt   Where does he get them?  Can/will he go to his doctor and tell them he's addicted and having seizures to get help?
